By now you already know it’s official. Android Wear is dead — well, in name only — with Google officially renaming the smartwatch platform to “Wear OS by Google.” Just like Android Pay, Google is seemingly distancing its products from the mobile operating system, probably in an effort to keep things simple.

The Wear OS rebrand is already hitting the Android Wear app and even a few Android Wear devices. While the list of devices that will receive the Wear OS update is almost no different from those already scheduled to receive Oreo (they’ve since added the recently released Skagen Falster and TAG Heuer Connected Modular 41), Google is providing a complete list so you’re not left wondering. Here’s the lineup:

Wear OS devices:

  • Casio PRO TREK Smart WSD-F20
  • Casio WSD-F10 Smart Outdoor Watch
  • Diesel Full Guard
  • Emporio Armani Connected
  • Fossil Q Control
  • Fossil Q Explorist
  • Fossil Q Founder 2.0
  • Fossil Q Marshal
  • Fossil Q Venture
  • Fossil Q Wander
  • Guess Connect
  • Gc Connect
  • Huawei Watch 2 (both cellular & non-cellular versions)
  • Hugo BOSS BOSS Touch
  • Kate Spade Scallop
  • LG Watch Sport
  • LG Watch Style
  • Louis Vuitton Tambour
  • Misfit Vapor
  • Michael Kors Access Bradshaw
  • Michael Kors Access Dylan
  • Michael Kors Access Grayson
  • Michael Kors Sofie
  • Montblanc Summit
  • Movado Connect
  • Mobvoi Ticwatch S & E
  • Nixon Mission
  • Polar M600
  • Skagen Falster Smartwatch
  • TAG Heuer Connected Modular 41
  • TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45
  • Tommy Hilfiger 24/7 You
  • ZTE Quartz

Of course, there’s no ETA on exactly when you can expect the update to hit your Android Wear smartwatch. It’s entirely based upon the manufacturer of the watch. Google says the rollout will begin gradually over the next few days/weeks, so make sure your watch is charged and connected to WiFi.
